The five most liberal justices all voted against Mr. Obama. The four most conservative justices dissented by wanting to curtail recess appointments even further yet.

@oralloy,
they also chided the GOP house for "taying in session by having someone come in and nter a name and a note every three days or so. They weren't REALLY in session. SO USSC chided the Congress with a little magisterial note of "Cant you guys work together"?

@farmerman,
Do you really think oralloy understands what just went on? Almost every President has done this. Its only stopped now. Now its time to strip Congress of "secret holds" and silent filibusters and force them to vote up or down. Filibusters have a place but they need to actually have speakers and then an immediate vote..

“The Senate is in session when it says it is,” Justice Stephen G. Breyer wrote for the court, stressing that if the Senate is able to conduct business, that is enough to keep the president from making recess appointments.

Any word on whether every single act that these false appointees participated in now gets nullified?

@oralloy,
that's all been settled so this is a tempts in a teapot/ 2 of the three appointees were already approved (after Congress "returned"). The other was either let go or resigned. The decisions aren't in question.

Seems like the USSC is merely a political "hall monitor"

Not that I've seen.

What about all the decisions they made during the period when they were still functioning as invalid appointees?

What about subsequent decisions that build on those earlier decisions?

"an immediate effect of the Court’s ruling may be to potentially invalidate thousands of decisions issued by the NLRB since the President’s recess appointments in 2012."
http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/12-1281

"So what exactly does all of this mean, going forward? First and foremost, it means that the three recess appointments directly involved in this case – to the NLRB – are invalid. That in turn means that any decisions in which those three NLRB commissioners participated while they were recess appointees are invalid."
